voy10Ok to me it doesn’t make sense. All these resorts that have a ton of snow (keystone, other big resorts, etc.) are closing when there’s resorts like 7 Springs, Boulder, other small east coast hills that are going to be open much longer then the big places?? Wouldn’t the places stay open as long as possible especially if they currently have a lot of snow?? It doesn’t make much sense to me. Springs’ base rn is 18-36” but there’s other places that have much more and they already closed. Is it just because it’s not worth it for them to stay open or what?
JoeF2661Money man. The shittiest part about being a skier is having to give your money to these huge conglomerates that operate some of the dopest terrain.
QuaffIt's typically due to leases with national forests. But this is also the time of year when lots of western resorts lose the snow around the base areas, which would be a bitch to work around.. downloading chairs and whatnot.
IsitWinterYet17This is exactly why for a lot of places. Jackson is a prime example
theabortionatorIf they were allowed to be open till September i bet they'd be close by the end of April almost every year.
drumbumocdpI already miss A51. Time to hit the bumps at the basin.
mr.tibblesThis is my favorite thing about mammoth. They basically keep the skiing out of main lodge going as long as possible. Best time of year at mammoth is after canyon lodge closes.
finderThey were open til august last year. Might be able to make it out there after my summer job ends lol
